About the album
Tangoseis are the most popular italian group af Tango in the word.
Blue note in Milan, Umbria jazz and some popular tv programs give them a legitimate fame.
The first idea that came to mind when we decided to record this album – this happened during one of those wonderful moments we shared while touring around last year – was to produce a music compilation whose common denominator would be the poetic quality of the melodies we would choose rather than the genre and language of the music.
We set off with these ideas in mind and as the project took shape we found ourselves collecting melodies which were indeed mixed on a stylistic level but definitely compatible in view of their in melodic eloquence.
Grouping together five main streams, the recorded material draws on the music of Astor Piazzolla – as a sign of continuity in our artistic experience – the classic Tango repertoire – contemporary classical music and the Argentinean folk repertoire – again a token of the above mentioned curiosity.
In most of the recorded material, the listener will perceive how the spontaneous vibrant energy we are able to generate – a trait we are proud of – is often put into the background by a vein of poetic languor. From this point of view, we can say that that energy – something people who come to our concerts or listen to our recordings are very familiar with – has not dried up. On the contrary, the underlying desire was to let this energy convert into a form of emotional strength that would contain and absorb it at the same time. The outcome is an overall polished product as far as tone-color subtleties are concerned, whereas the tracks reveal a prism of emotional facets – from clearly intimistic to biting; from severely melancholic to generously cheerful.
